    Default My Custom Build

    Hey all, this is what I have Scott Fletcher building for me. He's done a fantastic job, I can't wait for it to be done.

    Yeah, it'll be beside the volume like on the Axis. I'm kind of over the EVH toggle position. It keeps inline with my minimalist approach to this build. :P
    I'm also shooting for a bit more bite like from a les paul as far as tone goes, Scott recommended a 1/4" maple cap and mahogany back. No trem either, I'm not into them much anymore.

    Yeah I want it stained. It'll be a honey burst I think. I haven't gone over that with Scott yet. More specifically I want the Les Paul honey burst. I think the musicman version has a more red-ish\orange hue to it. I want it more brown looking.

    I guess I (and Scott) took some ideas from several different guitars which is pretty cool. The color and sound will be more influenced by a Les Paul. Neck ferrules, graphite neck rods and rear control cavity from a wolfgang. Neck and body from an EVH. Axis switch position and a non trem bridge influence from the Axis Supersport (stainless hipshot). It'll have a coil tap as well.

    It was a cool choice of top. I was thinking to go with a fairly symmetrical flame top, but Scott pulled that out and I was hooked.
